    I  seldom   play   PB  anymore  since  they  raised  the  price

     

    Only buy one once in a blue  moon

     

    I  play  the  Mega  Millions  more often  ,  but  just  one  or  two  tickets  there  also  anymore

     

    One with the megaplier  and    one   without   usually

     

    My  own  number  on   the  Megaplier   ticket     and   a   QP  on   the   regular  one

      I would only buy a couple. Then I THOUGHT I had a system based on mathematics and previous lotto numbers and purchased 20 tickets and did not match ONE number. Guess the system didn't work LOL

      I get none- Californians are not invited as of yet...but not for long.On April 8th the game comes our way by which time this present jackpot will be history.
      I usually get 3-5 MM tickets when it gets over $70 mil ,the same would be for PB.

        The rest of the country would appreciate it if you guys would hold off buying any tickets until the jackpot is won if it keeps rolling into April.

        How about it? Deal?

          I vote with my wallet by not buying any.

            You have my word rdgnr. I will pass the word around starting with Gov Moonbeam and working my way down through the Senate and contacting the local media & go on the airways to let your plea be known. Californians will step up to the plate and back off.You have my word..did l say that already? - aah well nothing like repeating oneself for emphasis.
            Now go out and win this thing rdgnr- l can only hold back the Californian lottery tsunami for so long.Poke

                Since Powerball price increase I stick to 5 tickets for $10. When Mega Millions come to Florida in May it will be 1 $2 ticket per draw. It take my chances on Mega Millions.

                      I play usually when the jackpot is up there...100M and up. Then I'll buy 5 lines...I'll MM the MM but won't PP the PB.
                      Last night I bought one MM ticket just to round off my total due for my P3 and p4 numbers.
                      I will by 5 PB tonight, no PP.

                      246 ~~ 485 ~~ 369 ~~ 890 ~~ 705 ~~ 357 ~~ 129 ~~ 165 ~  007 ~ 225 ~ 818 ~ 440 ~  7775 5557

                        I usually buy one ticket for both the PB and MM with the powerplay option. Last week because the jackpot was so high I bought 3 lines on Wed with powerplay and got the powerball # and on saturday bought 5 tickets with powerplay and got the powerball # again. Tonight I'm going to buy 5 tickets with powerplay option. Just like last saturday it will just cost me 3 dollars because of the 12 dollars I won by getting the powerball.

                          One. My wife and I play with a friend, we buy the Wednesday tickets for PB, he buys the Saturday ones, duplicate tickets for each draw (the same set of nunmbers).

                          So is that one or two?

                          Occassionally whjen the JP is pumped up we'll also buy the same ticket for the clerk for luck.

                          Lep

                          Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                          Lep

                          There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                              It sounds like 1/3 of one ticket.
